On those hot summer days, nothing is more refreshing than playing in the water. Here is a fun activity your kids can do when a swimming pool is not available. Give the kids an inexpensive paintbrush and a bucket of water. Let them "paint" the driveway, patio, sidewalk, etc. The sun will quickly evaporate it but they will have fun playing in the water plus you get your concrete surfaces washed off! This is a good activity to follow after they have enjoyed a day of sidewalk chalking. Expect some "water fights" so dress the kids accordingly.
